CLICK THE FROG TO JOIN THE PARTY!
Once upon a time, I remember you said: always count the cost. No one starts major construction without first counting the cost.
Forever feels like a very long time to promise to anyone. My breath catches at the thought. Can we really do this? Really? Then, I remember. and I know: forever isn’t long enough, not really, to spend with the people you love.
Maybe marriage is not so much about holding on. It’s about all those times we need to let go, to make the leap, trusting our friends to catch us, one step at a time, all the way down into forever.
This prompt from Na’ama Yehuda and Rochelle inspired me to think ahead to another new year and to all the years beyond it. Happy 2021! (If you must party, party responsibly and/or without incriminating evidence.)
